. as a republican, she was in the minority. look at the trend lines in the united states. in the post world war ii, unions were necessary. the gis came home, they needed jobs. they seem to have a place in society. now, if you look at the trendlines, they are against us. we are against china, south america. a week, the people, are buying that. we are buying things for those countries. just follow the trend line. if you notice the of unemployment reports over the last couple of months, there has been a steady decline in union membership as cities and states have shed public-sector employees across the board. host: what is your bottom line for mike williams? caller: i know mike is trying to drum of union support, but at the end of the day, in my opinion, unionization in the u.s., in the public and private sector, is on the decline. host: mr. williams? guest: several points that i would respond to. first, i will not make any excuses or apologize for the past errors of organized labor. work practices where you have to bring in three people to bring in a light bulb as an example -- i am in construction.
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
with other western nations, including the united states, about their response to the syrian civil war. remember, last month, our president drew a line in the sand saying plans for possible military involvement would change if syria uses or even moves their potentially deadly chemical weapons. president obama's remarks came at height of the election season, of course, that same week, governor romney said fell elected he would send u.s. troops to syria to keep those weapons from falling into the wrong hands. the violence has reportedly reached a new milestone: according to groups in the country, 5,000 people were killed in syria's civil war during the month of august, alone. if true, it is the highest one-month death toll since the crisis started to unfold more than 17 months ago. the chief fox correspondent, jonathan hunt, is in new york city with that report. a new united nations envoy is taking over for kofi annan but he does not sound optimistic. >>jonathan: he does not. he is a well traveled algerian diplomat, who, in fact, brought about an end to the lebanese civil war in 1990. bu
working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
live pictures of the first lady of the united states. she's here at the time warner cable arena. she's now at the podium the right there. you can see she's getting instructions, trying to begin to get a little feel for that stage up there. the teleprompter that will eventually be there. she's going to deliver a major address here, obviously, in charlotte at the democratic national convention tomorrow night. that's what the first lady will be doing. she's been here now, i'm guessing for at least 45 minutes to an hour. she was up in the sky boxes walking around, doing some television interviews, and just beginning to get a flavor for what's going on. this will be a very important address. she's very popular out there. has high, high approval and favorability numbers. there's no doubt about that. and she's going to be under enormous pressure to deliver that big speech tomorrow night. we're here in "the situation room" watching everything that's going on. gloria borger is here. brianna keilar is here. as we see the first lady, this is normal. everybody does this. all the big speakers, at
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
the united states, i don't think people want to hurt as badly as it's going to take to put their plan into action. that's what i think. i always like to guy that has the printing press that makes the money. i like that guy. >> let's talk about your guy. you know charlotte. you know back in 2008 then senator, his campaign official has been quick to point out his convention speech in denver, who can forget that night. it sold out in 24 hours. we are four days out from the president's big speech. he's got this 74,000 seater stadium and they have no indication they're going to be able to fill it up. what does that tell you? >> it ought to be bobble head night. they need to give something away. >> all seriousness. >> they were accusing cnn of standing in empty seats, the unnamed network of accusing you of making it look like romney didn't have people at his convention. i think no matter how many people show up here at the stadium, i don't think anybody will be talking about that within three days. how about if he take this occupy people and let them occupy the empty seats. i live in hollyw

and powerful housing project in the united states, that is the mortgage deduction. it's just that maybe 80% of it is going to go to those making over $100,000 a year. our state legislature doesn't have to, as they did just a few weeks ago, cut $350-something million to wealthier corporations, as they decide to cut in half the allocation to food banks, giving everything that's going on -- given everything that's going on in north carolina. so i do think we have an economic deficit and we have a money deficit as well. >> ray, it's amazing to me that we have managed in the process of our lives together to take off the table from any kind of intelligent conversation whatsoever a military budget which has no relationship whatsoever to what faces us as an international threat, that we are paying in our military side as if we faced five russians simultaneously in the soviet union days and need to keep raising that budget, democrat and republican. now, look, if the wise men of the simpson bowles commission or the bowles-simpson commission really were serious about what they were doing as opposed t
missiles, getting way ahead of the united states in defense and wait it was so dangerous that we might lose the cold war. kennedy said that over and over again. to some extent, one of the reasons that he won the election in 1960. he gets into office and has access to intelligence and realizes that actually soviets are way behind, extremely behind. there is a missile gap in the united states. the problem was that kennedy in the campaign, they said that we need hugely increased defense in order to make up for it and he was committed to that. the result was in 1961 at that time, the largest defense bill in human history, and it was to a great extent that it made -- needless to say, the missiles could have caused a lot of destruction. >> host: wended nikita khrushchev come on the scene? >> guest: it did take some people to the blog, but not nikita khrushchev. there were two leaders who were essentially a joint leadership. by 19541956, khrushchev was a supreme leader. >> host: what policy changes came with his ascension? >> guest: khrushchev would've been shocking to anyone in the west. but khru
it is going to be. and will the united states and the remainder of the nato forces will be able to achieve the right numbers of afghan security forces in the time that is allotted in order to facilitate that departure as you indicated. so the key question is, does this now put the u.s. departure on to a different time line and that is more of a political discussion than it does the realities on the ground. as you well know, and you have been embedded with these guys before. >> the one thing that they kept talking about is that they complained that the afghans were abandoning their posts, and they complained that they weren't reliable. that, these were, you know, uneducated, but they did not say, these guys are attacking us. and now you have that kind of lack of trust between the two individuals and how do you ever get that back? >> well, you truly have to keep working at it. you are absolutely spot-on. you can get it back. it can be reclaimed, the issue becomes one of trust and counter intuitively what is happening is that through the implementation of some of the new changes is u.s. and n
. there is a lot of people experiencing why we need better health care in these united states. and what is wrong with being wrong with being healthy and educated? nothing and we need to rise above on both of those issues>> gretchen: you are from pennsylvania. that will be a swing state will it not. on how do you see it going. >> pennsylvaniians know the president reflects what pennsylvania needs as opposed to governor romney's. as we have done four and eight years old we will elect a democrat and make sure the president is successful. >> gretchen: you believe the president should run on his policis and not look into the past four years ago. >> you can't ignore the past but you have to talk about where you want to go as a country. we are moving forward. policiless that governor romney and got us in the economic craziness. old bush economic policy and. it is not working. >> gretchen: the campaign is so divisive will the president try to make all people come together this week or will it be what some people deemed class warfare. >> i don't know where that came from. because you know, what the presi

excited to reelect this president as president of the united states. he's got to give them the talking points to remind folks he's done what no other many was able to do in passing the health care act. he has to talk about the ways he stood strong against a congress, that would have allowed student rates to double. when he's talking about a tax increase, it's a return to historic norms, that where we are right now basically allows the wealth jest americans off the hook from paying their fair share. i think the message is we have to move all together. irges what do you think about this question, are you better off and how it's being answered? >> ultimately there's a lot of ways to say we are better off, but we're in a situation of moving towards being much better off. so let's take, for example, the affordable health care act, the president's signature piece of domestic legislation. there are many families who can right now say yes i am demonstrably better off today as a result of the affordable care act, but he's also got to remind folks that most of those provisions have not yet kicke
moon was convicted of tax fraud in the united states. that was also the same year he founded "the washington times" newspaper. now in a statement, the president of "the washington times" said reverend moon had a remarkable sensibility about the influence and power of the media on culture and politics when he founded "the washington times" in 1982. we're grateful for his determined insight and support and we plan on a continuing legacy of credible, optimistic journalism in the nation's capital during a pivotal time in a changing world. our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire moon family for their loss. >>> the time right now is 5:05. i'm watching your money. the federal aviation administration says a fire shut down flights at the washington area's three main airports. this fire happened at a regional air traffic control facility in an office refrigerator. because the office had to be evacuated, flights in and out of reagan, dulles and bwi were stopped for 25 minutes. fortunately this happened yesterday morning. it affected less than 20 flights and had this happened during the

europe the president of the united states, you've been there for four years, they can't get through one sentence without mentioning george w. bush, that's not what president obama got elected to do. most people are disenfranchised. they look at the hope, the change, the bringing the kcounty together. we're not the red states, the blue states, we're the united states. where did that go? all of that has gone out the door. >> it went out the door with some republicans in congress. >> no, but that's not the way that it operated and i think the country recognizes it's off track. i think they do want to turn around. that's the whole premise of the romney/ryan presidency, the candidacy. and that's where i think mitt romney will be the next president of the united states. we do need a turnaround, somebody who knows about jobs and the economy, somebody who knows about business. that's why mitt romney will be the next president. >> the democrats are happy to have this comparison between do you want to go back to the clinton years or the bush years? what do republicans point to? what decade of gov
of consumers reside outside of the border of the united states so free trade is critical and he was a proponent of that. >>neil: thank you very much i know you have a very hectic schedule, along with your pre-schooler. >>guest: starts this week. >>neil: thank you, jay. much is made in this building of the most anticipated speaker, if i can daresay, more than michelle obama and that is bill clinton. there has been a lot of talk back-and-forth whether the two, that is, bill clinton and the president, really get along, whether bill clinton still sports doubts about the president, but, nevertheless his speech will be heard on wednesday night. we hear the stories back-and-forth whether true obama loyalists wanted to hear from the former president that he makes this look bad, but, the fact of the matter is, the proof is in the invite pudding and the fact of the matter is, bill clinton has been invited to speak and will, in fact, be giving a major speech at this convention. that is what makes it very different. it is one of those, would have, could have, hard to argue points but without jesse jackson
promise he'd made to the american people. >> madam speaker, the president of the united states. >> obama decided this was an issue he needed to take on early in his presidency or forfeit it entirely. >> chris, picking up your co commentary there, how much of this fight is still about the president's decision on health care reform? >> well, i think the republicans think it's a bad thing. even though it's something that american presidents have really argued for since the days of teddy roosevelt. certainly all progressives, all of them including harry truman and kennedy and johnsens and going back to both roosevelts. it's something that's always been on the progressive agenda and never been realized. of course conservatives are opposed to it. they were opposed to social security and medicare and medicaid and unemployment composition and child labor laws and minimum wage. i was just reading this book about the young winston churchill in the early part of last century. the politics haven't changed. they haven't changed. it's the same old arguments. predictable opposition to social progress.
people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children. >> yet with all of these successes, republicans are still trotting out the same line of criticism that the president has not been a strong leader on the international stage. >> unfortunately, for four years, for four years, we've drifted away from our proudest traditions of global leadership. traditions that are truly bipartisan. we've let the challenges we face both at home and abroad become much harder to solve. >> joining us now from washington is former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley and foreign policy editor in chief, susan glasser. great to have you both on the program. p.j., i want to start with you. what did it signal to you that romney was completely silent on afghanistan in one of the most sort of significant speeches he's given to date? >> i mean, it certainly was a surprise but one of the reasons he didn't mention it is because ultimately,
to be the top diplomat in the united states. i think that their relationship has evolved to be a very good relationship and you will see it manifest by the remarks wednesday night. and one of the dangers of saying, oh, there's all of the trouble between bill clinton and barack obama and what have you, you see, i think that when we leave charlotte, i expect and hopefully the people saying bill really went to bat for barack obama wednesday night. >> and how is it after thursday that the president accepts the nominations that you have the friday jobs morning and chairman fed ben bernanke to talk about whether or not they will inject more stimulus into the economy and are people going to essentially take a look at those numbers and those speeches looking forward in the next two months? >> well, obviously, that is going to matter and you preferring to have a good jobs number and not a bad jobs number, of course, you do. but we have come into the convention with 8.3% unemployment and they have just finished their convention and the race is tight. knock me over with a feather, that is not a bad p
at the arizona/mexico border saying welcome all illegals to your united states, our home is your home. megyn: well, what a shift in this federal investigation into sheriff joe arpaio. the feds have now closed their criminal investigation of america's so-called toughest sheriff. the feds releasing that news late on the friday just before the labor day weekend. sheriff arpaio had maintained all along that the lawsuit had no merit, the investigation, i should say. he was accused of abuse of power, mostly for misusing county credit cards, they said, and for allegedly misspending tax money approved for jail-related expenses. this announcement will mark the end of a four-year investigation that technically began under the bush administration, but sheriff joe has maintained that it ramped up under president obama, and he believed it was political. there are still civil suits filed by another group, a group of latinos, against sheriff around pie -- arpaio's office for alleged racial profiling. now the feds have ended their criminal investigation of this man. >>> fox newswet alert for you, president
get things turned around. we can elect mitt romney the next president of united states. we can get america back on track. that is what we can do. [applause] after four -- i love you, too, man. after four years of the runaround, it is time for a turnaround. and that is why we need mitt romney. [applause] what is missing is leadership. leadership to actually see the problem and fix the problem. mitt romney is the kind of person whose entire life story tells us this is the kind of leader we need. very few times before have i ever seen a situation where the man and the moment meet so perfectly. look at what this man has done with his life. look at the beautiful family he has raised. look at the communities he has supported. look at the tens of thousands of jobs he has helped create. remember the olympics when they were back in salt lake? remember the stories of corruption, of bloated, wasteful spending? sounds familiar, doesn't it? what did they do? in utah, they asked the man from massachusetts to drop everything and say the. he moved his family. he said the olympics. he turned around
the decision that the president of the united states, we have 50 allies working with us, naughto and other countries in afghanistan. the president organized them. all 50 of them said it's time to set a date to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. now, what did romney say? he said that was a mistake. host: well, rana from boston, massachusetts, are you sticking with the president in 2012? caller: no. but i still have a statement i want to make, peter. host: we're listening. caller: i have written you e-mails, tweeted you, sent you about 30, 40 e-mails and i know some of my neighbors in the addition where i live have said many -- have sent many, many e-mails, because we've discussed this. we want to know who is this woman that gets on sometimes twice a day and every day, they call from tennessee, she has about 10 different names, she says the name is ann. one day they got her on, it was about 9:15, she said her name was ann, s called right back and somebody called her and she got on again, said her name was marsha. now, i know you all know who it is, so t
of the united states convention. here we got an ipad case in the refillable water bottle. >> tell us about the order of the convention's four years ago. >> there is no law that governs this but since about 1930 to the parties have had a handshake agreement that basically whatever party controls the white house gets to go second. the party that goes second can rebut claims made by the challenging party and can actually make things different on the fly. in 2008 john mccain's people took one look at what the dnc was doing with their greek columns and purposely scaled back the appearance of their convention both to distinguish themselves from the democrats and also in recognition of the declining economy. it always goes to the party that has the incumbent in the white house >> can you have a counter party after the second party? >> exactly >> let's talk about this, you were saying something about a possible same-sex marriage controversy. >> you might recall that the democratic party have elected to make same-sex marriage one of its platforms in its endorsement of same-sex marriage and back in
